ANGONET believes in:

  • Joint strategies and efforts in addressing issues of common interests that, in principle, need a collective approach.
  • Inclusive participation and involvement of key stakeholders at every stage of the project to build a sense of ownership, sustainability and ultimate realization of a common goal.
  • The importance of early warning and preventive mechanisms now rather than mitigating a problem and its effect later.
  • Non-competitive partnership between member CSOs and other stakeholders with an ethical agenda regarding socio-economic development.
  • Accountability and transparency with spirit of volunteerism, responsiveness and real commitment to bring about required change.
  • Ethics, human rights and integrity as vital elements toward accomplishments of CSOs initiatives at various levels and appreciation for positive contributions of others on the areas of mutual engagement.
